Vineet likes to play different characters

no friends in bollywood
Vineet has also taken a lot of push to make his place and during this time he got a chance to know and understand Bollywood closely. The actor had told in an interview to the media that ‘I have learned this in this industry that no one is friends here. Here hugs meet but hearts do not meet. Here business dominates while cinema is a creative thing. Along with the box office, if we talk about better films, shows, then only we will be able to move forward. Before films, we start thinking about the box office. If the actors don’t work on the story, promote absurd things, then one day the ground will slip from under their feet.
